What home builder that's building new homes in that area would you recommend? I work in that corner and would like to find a new home in the Klein ISD district (KHS or KCHS).

Go to HAR.com

Click area 13

Under schools, click Klein

Tons of new construction

Both of the schools you mentioned are bursting at the seams. The district decided to not build HS #5 due to decline in housing. Instead, they went ahead with the redoing of KHS. They are having to move Collins and Oak kids due to overcrowding. Moving into Collins will not insure that is where your kid will go. Get deep into the catchment area. MAYBE A BLOCK FROM THE SCHOOL.

$250k, no preference on lot and new. I had a deal in place for a home, but I'm backing out because of the inspection. It's being built pretty poorly and I don't want to make a $200k mistake. I rather lose out on the deposit than be stuck with a ****ty home.

Ok, I'm very knowledgeable around that area. Since that is where we were looking for over a year.

Great thing is 250K will get you a nice home if you look in the right places.

How far are you willing to commute?

Do you want to be closer to FM249 or I-45?

Who was the builder you were looking into buying from?

What neighborhood hood was it in?

Champion Woods still has some tract homes around that price range, it is basically behind the HEB at Stuebner and Louetta. They have a custom section ($450,000+), but they have a tract section too.

Go North on Stuebner from Louetta, and take a left on Mintwood (big blue sign at the turn).

Once you get to the next stop sign, take a left and you are basically there.

Just worked with a buyer in Champions Woods. Great location, but new construction opportuniteis are not broad on the horizon.

Newer homes have lots of energy savings over the old ones.

The Louetta corridor is filling up and not much is left.
